Hello,
I am from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and I am wondering if there is currently anyone breeding Newts or Salamanders in my area. Or even in Canada, that could ship to Edmonton. I see so many wonderful animals bred in the U.S.A. and other countries around the world, but why not here? Just curious.:rolleyes:

I think that the number of newts being bred is proportional to the human population. There are some newts bred in Canada, but your population of prospective breeders is smaller than the US or Europe.

I was able to locate someone in my city with a breeding colony of C.e.popei.
He is going to sell me 3 when the morphs are ready. :D

Still looking for any other canadian breeders though.

How much for the C.e.popei that the breeder was selling you? I'm from Saskatchewan and will be looking to purchase in the future once I have the tank setup and ready that I plan on making.

    That´s the most accurate. Depends on the size of the tub etc. - you just want to make sure the water is always clean

    When little axolotls are tubbed is it common for them to get a little more spunky then usual? Water temps around 64-65 F and has been changed today with prime added

    Hi does anyone know if jungle fungus clear is safe to use for my axolotl? She has some either fungus or bacterial growth on her fillibrae and maybe body and I read that's good to use if you aren't sure if the problem is bacterial or fungal

    That jungle fungus clear. I've been dealing with some fungus with my axolotl on and off this summer. The Holtsfreter solution and water changes just seem to do the trick after a bit

    Where do you get the holtsfreter solution? I've been upping water changes but salt bath seems to be more stressful/harmful than beneficial because she does not like to be caught!

    Anyone know how to harden soft water without raising pH?

    To raise GH, add calcium carbonate (or tums). What has you doing this?

    Thank you! My tap water is naturally low in GH and KH, and I need to raise it... but I don't want to raise the pH, which is perfect, with coral.

    Hi, I really need some advice about cloudy water in my axlotl tank!

  • AnimeDan:
    Hi Delaney. Can you be more specific? There are lots of reasons for cloudy water, such as substrate getting kicked up, water hardness, etc. if you don’t have hard water and it doesn’t settle then I’d do a water change and see if that helps.
